Coldbrew, 2 tsp leaf in 500 mL water for 2 hours
The vanilla really comes through well. It tastes how good vanilla extract smells in the container. There’s that distinctive vanilla scent and also the smell of the alcohol it is infused into. This rooibos blend perfectly captures the alcohol aspect of vanilla which I LOVE. So often vanilla smells really good, but if you taste vanilla extract it isn’t nearly as good as you hoped. This is the perfect vanilla blend. I’m not sure there is a ton of bourbon, but it’s there enough to live up to its name. I think this could be made as a latte if steeped strong enough. It does well as a cold brew, but I can imagine it would be equally enjoyable hot.
I’m actually extremely impressed with this rooibos. I was expressing generic vanilla + rooibos and got something that stands out as being well crafted and accurate to its name.
